-HossC, while snooping around in the area, I noticed an intriguing 'noirish' relic in the shadow of the Commodore sign.

-while the Commodore is located on 7th & Lucas, this wooden anomaly is on the same block, at the southeast corner of Lucas & Ingraham.

the complex seems to have been built around this house on Ingraham. (note the Commodore sign between the eaves)

Can you imagine the noirish stories associated with this sprawling place from the turn of the century?
